It would allow applications to read our facial expressions and reflect them on our avatar’s face.
Another patent appeared last week, this time in reference to a technology that does not seem so far-fetched that it will appear soon. Making a very practical use of cameras dedicated to eye tracking, which, everything seems to point, will be present in viewers of more than one company in the not too distant future.
After a previous calibration, in which we would be asked to emulate a series of grimaces programmed by the developer, an algorithm would be in charge of comparing the image generated by the sensor with the series of registered expressions, detecting when we make one and translating it into our character.
Speaking of virtual and augmented reality, it seems the best solution when registering this type of expressions, since we are not always looking at a sensor, and everything seems to point to the inside-out tracking is the bet for the future, assuming that the results of Google have been satisfactory with the little area to analyze that they have inside the helmet.
